Need to know

Emergencies - Dial 999 or 911 for emergencies

Security in St Vincent - Many visitors travel to the island each year and do not have any incidents however we recommend that you take care at night and exercise caution at all times. Do not stray from the town centre of Castries.

Take advice from the locals as to any city areas you should avoid at all times and do not leave your belongings unattended on the beach. Use your hotel safe or security boxes to store your valuables. Avoid driving at night outside the main town centres.

Other Risks - When taking a boat trip check that the boat operator has sails or oars in the event of an engine breakdown, a radio and lifejackets and equipment in the event of a fire. Accidents do happen and boats can break down. When sourcing a water sport provider that is not affiliated to your hotel, make sure they are properly licenced to provide those services, avoid approaches on the beach from vendors offering water sport.
